N.C. school district votes to end widely used sex education program amid outcry

Cumberland County Board of Education voted Tuesday night to get rid of its Planned Parenthood sex education program after criticism from some parents.

There were some heated moments at the school board meeting Tuesday night as community members clashed over a controversial sex education program, which starts teaching kids about sex in sixth grade. The internet, social media, and the #MeToo movement is shining a light on the issues of sex and consent, but it also raises questions about what kids should be taught, at what age, and by whom.
